Artist Bio

Richard “Duarte” Brown is a master artist with the TRANSIT ARTS Youth Arts Program and the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education’s (OAAE) Art in the House program. For more than 30 years, Duarte has dedicated his talents to helping young people in Columbus through countless programs including CAPACITY (the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts’ youth arts program), the Short Stop Youth Center, the King Arts Complex, the OAAE Artists-in-Schools program, the Greater Columbus Arts Council’s (GCAC) Children of the Future, Ebony Boys, Art Safe, and Art Possible Ohio. A member of the Ohio Teaching Artist Roster, Duarte has worked as a high school art instructor at the Arts and College Preparatory Academy in Columbus. He has also led hands-on artmaking experiences at Whitehall City Schools and Berne Union Schools in the Village of Sugar Grove in Fairfield County as a resident artist supported by the Ohio Arts Council’s TeachArtsOhio arts learning grant program.

Through his own mixed-media paintings, Duarte connects people through the sharing of narratives that unveil layers of personal development and stir individual strength, wisdom, and courage. He encourages the innate creative voice in all of us through visual demonstrations of ethnography that show a quest for growth, provoke dialogue, and draw out the brilliance of the lifelong alumni of his creative influence.  In 2022, Duarte received the Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Fellowship from GCAC and the Columbus Museum of Art, as well as the Governor's Award for Arts Education.  His murals can be seen throughout Columbus, bringing comfort and inspiration to countless viewers.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
